It is the challenge of our time, and one that requires the best thinking of the building products industry. How do you balance a striking appearance with the comfort, functionality and energy savings that every project now requires? Guardian Glass has engineered sustainability into virtually every one of our products, increasing solar control and thermal insulation to help achieve the industry’s most stringent energy standards.
Guardian supports the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), a coalition of building industry leaders who promote and create environmentally responsible structures. We are also part of the federal ENERGY STAR® program, aimed at increasing energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
LEED for New Construction is a voluntary standard for developing high-performance sustainable buildings. Using SunGuard glass can boost your LEED score in up to six categories. Guardian SunGuard® line offers the largest selection of post-temperable, sputter-coated and insulated glass in the industry. These advanced coatings only offer enhanced indoor environments while protecting the natural environment.
